trace: handle NULL argument in trace_disable()

All of the trace functions treat a NULL key as a synonym for
the default GIT_TRACE key. Except for trace_disable(), which
will segfault.

Fortunately, this can't cause any bugs, as the function has
no callers. But rather than drop it, let's fix the bug, as I
plan to add a caller.
